    I use the WGS84 and wrote a C soft on a Raspeberry to convert latlon-> UTM. That not the problem.

On google plus it allows you to share your location with whom ever you choose, so my husband and I share our location with each other, but for some reason his is always wrong, and it always shows him in...


Hi Brenda
You need an App that will give you your current GPS coordinates.
Install an App Like MotionX or similar. Check the Latitude & Longitude or Better still the UTM Easting & Northing (same thing but UTM is the new digital coordinates & is easier)
Compare one phone coordinates with the other phone.
they should be almost identical if your in same location.
Otherwise check your phone SETTINGS for GPS & how it's set up.
Even a standard Garmin GPS tracker (which I use for prospecting) can be set fro the wrong side of the world. Usually its set for WGS 84 or 94 & UTM. I have seen people set up for the northern hemisphere when they are in the southern hemisphere.
Also, you said that your husbands settings never change. Well... it's GPS either turned off or broken.
I also use my "Find My Phone" App to check on the wife.... and she's on her way home... so GoodLuck
Cheers
Trevor

My Garmin nuvi 1300LMT can't find my home address and my maps are updated....HELP!


I have a Garmin nuvi 1390 and live in the country, so my Garmin was unable to locate my address. I'm not sure if this will work on your model, but it may be worth a try. What I did is this: I turned on my Garmin at my house and let in acquire the satellites, I then went to the Tools menu and chose "Where Am I?" It should now display your location using longitude and latitude. If you can save this location and name it as "Home", or at the very least write down the longitude and latitude coordinates and then use the "Where To?" function, select Coordinates, type in the coordinates and save it. You should be able to save it with any name you choose.
Hope this helps.

How to find a position from GPS coordinates?


If you know the proper geographic coordinates of your destination, You can easily navigate around your destination using the longitude and latitude coordinates or other coordinate formats.
  1. Touch WHERE TO on the screen,
  2. Touch COORDINATES from the list,
  3. Touch FORMAT to change type of coordinates. Because different maps and charts use different position formats, the nuvi allows you to select the correct coordinate format for the type of map you are using,
  4. Enter the coordinates and touch DONE.
That is how you find a position using the coordinates, but you have to be very familiar with coordinates to be able to use it.
Complements of the season to you over there.

Can my TomTom XXL 540-S be used with GPS coordinates?


If you are referring to Latitude and Longitude , yes. You can use those co-ordinates to navigate to a destination. This especially works fine in countries where the Avenue and street information is not available. Google maps can give you the latitude and longitude coordinates. You can fed those into the GPS and navigate. Please note, you will need the maps of the region involved. Click (Tap) on the main screen. Tap on: navigate to Tap on : arrow Tap on: Latitude longitude Enter latitude and longitude using keyboard, Latitude first and longitude next. Be careful while you do this and do not forget to enter the directions North, West etc.

Garmin Etrex - ORdnance Survey Grid reference nos


You shouldn't have to connect to a computer. I don't have an OS map in front of me but I'm guessing they use UTM with a WGS 84 datum (if the map was produced after 1984 that is). Got to the Setup page then select Units. Change Position Frmt to UTM/UPS and Map Datum to WGS 84.
